Two drink-drivers were caught by police when one crashed into the other in Grantham.

Lee Goddard of Norton Street in Grantham and Nathan Melton of Baysdale Grove in Grantham both admitted drink-driving.

The pair were spotted walking along Harlaxton Road in the early hours of January 7. Officers spoke to the pair and it was revealed that Goddard had crashed his Ford Focus into the back of Melton’s Ford Fiesta at the junction of Springfield Road and Harlaxton Road.

Melton was found to have 46mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood while Goddard was found to have 89mg in 100ml of blood.

Melton, 21, only gained his driving licence in October of last year.

Rory Macmillan, defending Melton, said: “This is clearly out of character for him and he is very sorry about what has happened.”

Chris Pye-Smith, defending Goddard, said: “I would ask that you give him credit for his co-operation with the police.”

Melton was fined £240 and ordered to pay a £24 surcharge and £85 in costs. He was disqualified from driving for 14 months.

Goddard, 24, was fined £305 and ordered to pay a £30 surcharge and £85 in costs. He was disqualified from driving for 24 months.
